Well in the last week or so I have walked to the store - post office - friends house ... in the past I would just got in teh car and drove less than five minutes to do these same things - part of the result is the scale is now going down... I like that....
I bought some new shoes from academy today. Tomorrow I am learning the via route. My boyfriend has a problem with my wanting to walk. But my car broke down and these past few days have sucked having to lean on people more and be less independent.
I took my own advise - I walked to the post office across the street instead of taking the car - mental bloc you know - so much easier just to get into that vehicle and and drive - but I didn't I took Dalhouise and walked and I enjoyed it..
before I had the car - had no choice - had to walk to shop or take a bus. I would go with a little four wheel food cart. At that time it was half hour walk each way to the mall / stores for me. NOW I have a car and I moved.. I seldom walk to the store even though it is even just across the street - -- I'm bad. ------- it is a small plaza and a large parking lot and busy highway to cross... :)
Anyone walk to the grocery store? How long of a walk is it for you?
To heb its only maybe 2 or 3 miles total. To walmart its a lot more maybe 10 total. Anyways I am thinking of taking a backpack with me and just walking to the grocery store when I need stuff. It would save gas and get exercise in.
